Olfactory Malfunction

I've been told by many that every pregnancy is different. My first pregnancy was pure joy - no vomiting, minimal weight gain, I was able to stay active in the theatre.... I am now in my 5th month of my 2nd (AND LAST!!!) pregnancy, and I am still throwing up, still tired, and I can't walk so much as a mile without having to stop and go straight to bed for the night. People don't believe me when I tell them that I am still barfing. They say "but that goes away after the first trimester" um, hi, I'm not making it up! Every time I smell french fries, garlic, or onions, that squeezy feeling creeps up my throat, and I start looking around for the nearest bush, bucket or trash can. The list does not end there. My "trigger" smells also include any grilled food, campfire, sweaty shoes, old carpeting and most forms of wood. To make matters worse, I had a sensitive schnozz BEFORE my pregnancy, and so now, I am able to walk up to any person and know what they have had for dinner for the last 3 weeks! Maybe it's because I have those large Armstrong nostrils, or maybe I grew up in an all-too-clean household in my youth. I dunno, but I can't WAIT to get this baby out so I can wake up and smell.......NOTHING!

Stephanie had morning sickness all day long through BOTH of her pregnancies. Hmmm, and both my granddaughters are monsters. You had a good pregnancy the first time around, and Riley is a sweetheart.

Do you see a pattern here? You're about to give birth to "Rosemary's Baby"!!!!


j/k :)

ummm, you don't know Riley very well, do you? Riley is "rile"-ey. HE is the most stubborn kid you will ever meet. He was just off the day you met him!
